The Tracker Team.
"Streetstyle doesn't really exist. It's just something someone made up." - Dan Wilkes
There is a lot going on in this ad. You get Powell Peralta's Ray Underhill, Tracker's Dan Wilkes, Blockhead's Jim Gray, and Vision's Tom Groholski. I think each of these photos could stand up on its own as a full page. Jim's might be a little plain, but the rest are great. It's all slightly different views of somewhat less common tricks.
The new issue of Thrasher came with the Hell Of A Year for 2014 DVD. I watched nearly all of it last night. It was a good mix of clips from different skaters. Lem Villemin had a swank part that I missed. Jordan Hoffart does the forever boardslide for his Firing Line. Watching skateboarding on the TV is way better than watching skateboarding on a computer or your mobile device.
Vert Is Dead will be back on Monday, January 15. I need a break.
It will be two weeks of stuff from 1991 when I fire this thing up again. Some other things you have to look forward to in 2015 will include a couple or three weeks of 2010, a look at the cast of Flip's Sorry video, and Skate More by DVS.
The quote is from the Best of Skate Fate by Gary Scott Davis.
